2 typos. 1 Tweet. Man, I was really on fire with that last one.
I love being the 50th follower to star a tweet. ;)
Well, I guess I can cross pulling over while he’s puking out the window off my list…
See G+ for the unabridged version of this tweet.
Why the fuck am I more nervous NOW than I was during the first call!?!?!?!?

I was totallly going to mention that yesterday but I figured it would not help as that is a scary word. I bought something online called silvercure and it is the ONLY thing that got rid of it..all 5 of us had it! goodluck. xoxox
You are NOT a bad mommy! You did what you thought was right and honestly I think most parents would try to treat it with OTC ointments before rushing straight to the doctor like a hypochondriac. These things happen. It will get better :)
My 6 year old was diagnosed with “molluscum contagiosum” (not the same as warts but they are also treated with similar medicines. It’s caused by the “pox” virus, not HPV.
- The virus is highly contagious and commonly spreads through skin-to-skin contact or touching the bumps and then touching the skin. Touching an object that has the virus on it, such as a towel, also can spread the infection. The virus can spread from one part of the body to another. Or it can spread to other people, such as children at day care or school.
- The infection is contagious until the bumps are gone.
- It’s most common in children ages 1-10.
- Typically, most adults are already immune unless their immune system is compromised.
- It can take up to 6 months for the bumps to appear AFTER being exposed to the virus.
- Each bump has it’s OWN life span…so it often drags out making it seem permanent.
He has to go back every 2 weeks for a topical treatment until we get it under control. The best part is when the Dr told me that the cortizone and anitibiotic ointment I had been using actually made it WORSE. I’m officially the worst mommy ever. *sob*
It took me a few visits to figure out what Tumblr actually was because I’d only followed a few tweets here. Eventually I stumbled on some intriguing posts and realized it wasn’t just some TwitPic site. At the time, I was itching to keep a blog and the one I had at blogger completely bombed. I didn’t get any traffic there and without any feedback or interaction I didn’t see the point. In January, MatthewScene noticed me poking around Tumblr and encouraged me to give it a chance, and so I did.
I quickly realized that nearly half of my Twitter favorites were hanging out here like it was some VIP party. It was so nice to finally put a face on their personalities and once I realized how close knit the community was, I knew it was exactly what I’d been looking for. I knocked on the door and you guys let me in and handed me a cocktail.
Everyday, one of you reminds me how amazing this place is and how incredibly lucky I am to have found this cozy little corner of the interwebs. You guys keep me sane!
Someone I admire and respect a great deal deleted me from Facebook, and it stings.
Facebook is my personal space. Shellshokt doesn’t live there. She’s an alter ego that lurks in the corners of the interwebs where my family and co-workers are not welcome. Only 3 Tumblr friends have ever crossed over to FB, and this person was one of them.
I noticed the deleting by mistake when I was visiting a mutual friend’s page. I hoped it was a mistake and actually stooped to sending that horribly awkward message “hey, I noticed you deleted me. Did I do something wrong?” To which they replied, “don’t read too much into it. I deleted my own family.” And that would have been the end of it, except for the fact that while I was on their page confirming that I was in fact deleted, I noticed that they still had 200+ friends and the friend on the very top shared their last name. Smooth.
What’s confusing is that they still chose to circle me and continue to interact with me on G+. I’ve actually been ignoring FB for a few weeks, so I haven’t been very active or loading their stream with crap. Yet, for some reason they actually took the time to pull up their friend list and remove me, for no apparent reason. How do you not read into that? We communicate via Twitter and G+ about once a week, so it’s not like communication just dwindled off and they are trimming the fat.
On Twitter, I randomly toss out bad tweets that none of you should be subjected to. I EXPECT to be unfollowed there. Unfollowing is completely different than unfriending. Following involves choosing people who have similar interests and personalities and that criteria is subject to change. When you remove a friend, the message is clearl, “we are not friends.” But I thought we were, and that really fucking sucks.
My 6 yr old has a rash on his bottom, it looks like small red, itchy bumps over a 4x6 area. It’s definitely not hives or bug bites. Each spot is smaller than a pencil eraser and look a lot like pimples. I’ve been treating it with over the counter antibiotic cream for almost 3 weeks but since I don’t have full custody, I only get to treat it when he’s with me. Needless to say, the treatment has been sporadic (if at all) when he’s at his Dad’s house. This past weeked I concluded that the medicine is just not working because the rash seemed to have spread (new spots appeared in between the older ones, it didn’t spread to other body parts). Also, the bumps were initially light in color (like goosebumps), after treatment I noticed that they became red and more defined. Since they did look smaller, I had some trouble determining if the cream was working or not. I finally had my sister (who’s an RN) take a look and said it looked like a Staph infection. I Googled pics of staph and it looked almost identical. My ex took finally him to the pediatrician today. I just got a text from him informing me that they told him the rash is warts. WARTS!?!?!?
I’m waiting for my ex to call me with more info (he’s on a conference call). So far the only concrete info I’ve gotten from him is that the Dr said it was NOT the same as genital warts. HOLY SHIT I’m freaking out. Is there REALLY a difference when it’s THAT vicinity? The rash is ITCHY and RED. I have never in my life heard anyone say that warts are itchy or red!!! I had a few growing up and they looked nothing like this. I just Googled pics of warts (and now I’m scarred me for life) and none of the pics I saw look anything like his rash. WTF!?!?!? Have you guys ever heard such a thing?
We’re taking him to a dermatologist tomorrow. So until then…I will do my best not to freak the fuck out. :’(
My poor baby.
Tell me that doesn’t mean “good boobs?”
It’s times like these that I really hate telecommuting.
My female co-worker’s last name loosely translates to “good boobs.” Dying to know if she lives up to her name. I may never know…
Birds chirping, kitty purring, kiddies giggling in their room… garbage truck banging, dogs barking, kiddies fighting, kiddies screaming. Good morning!
Twitter is full of the most talented comedians. I wonder how many of them have tables waiting for a refill and a check right now? *ducks*
Slutty and funny! Bonus.
You naughty little minx.
Was it that obvious that I’ve been lusting for you? Unfortunately, I’m just too blonde to follow your instructions and I can’t seem to get to your page. Maybe next time you should spam me somewhere else or better yet, get a Tumblr account and post your pics to sexysexeveryday like everyone else!
